A Final Toast to the Mighty USS Kitty Hawk | Friday Happy Hour
Salute the Kitty Hawk with drinks and stories!
This Friday Happy Hour, Tyler Buckingham and Rear Admiral Tim Gallaudet (ret) raise their glasses in celebration and remembrance of the mighty USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63). Commissioned in 1961, the Kitty Hawk served with distinction for 48 years, earning several awards and decorations including the highly prestigious Presidential Unity Citation. Along the way, during the operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, a Lieutenant commander Tim Gallaudet served aboard the Kitty Hawk and recounts his experience "driving" the 1,000 foot-long warship during full scale flight operations, an experience he will never forget. Grab a refreshment and join us in toasting to the USS Kitty Hawk and the sailors who served aboard her!
